“More than most of the bands on John Zorn’s Tzadik label, Brooklyn’s Pitom understands that rocking is something you can’t annotate… Pushing the whole thing through the scales and melodies of frontman Yoshie Fruchter’s Jewish heritage-if any band can walk the talk of the word “radical” in the phrase “Radical Jewish Music,” it’s these guys. Fruchter is equal parts seminary school, jazz school, and Nirvana’s “School,” doing the same for heavy metal that Zorn’s Masada did for free-jazz.” –Village Voice
“Fun, loud and well-played…” TimeOutChicago
“Incredibly creative, remarkably capable, and gutsy band that takes musical risks in stride.” JazzReview

I got their new album, it rocks and is great to listen to while biking.
